Sometimes, it depends on the car

If your car has an airbag, you might want to consider just calling the locksmith first. I watched this being done on a car I had without an airbag and I'd be comfortable doing that job myself. As slick said, there's a lot of difference between cars.

You should be able to go to a Ford dealer with your VIN number and proof of ownership and have them make you a new key. Then take the new key to a locksmith and have a few extras cut.
